The Juvenile Magazine [1788]

Total Issues: 12

The first successful attempt at sustaining a monthly magazine for children (albeit for only a year) -- unlike John Newbery's Lilliputian Magazine (1751) which saw just 2 or 3 issues. This was "an instructive and entertaining miscellany" with improving stories! Most of the items were anonymous and probably by Peacock and Mary Ann Kilner.

Full title was "The Juvenile Magazine; or, An Instructive and Entertaining Miscellany for Youth of Both Sexes".
